Since Spring Break in San Antonio is right around the corner, we would like to take this opportunity to humbly invite you to our zoo’s wild Spring Break celebration. Even though we are known for our Snake Farm roots, our zoo is home to over 500 different animal species, from adorable fennec foxes and river otters to formidable kings of the jungle like jaguars, white lions, and much more! This impressive array of animals makes our Spring Break party perfect for all kinds of animal lovers. In addition to discussing our long-anticipated Spring Break event, we will be suggesting several local Spring Break events that encourage guests to get in touch with their wild sides! Here is a list of the 5 fun-filled events we will be highlighting throughout this blog:

  • Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo’s Spring Break event
  • The San Antonio River Walk’s and The Harp & Shamrock Society of Texas’ Bud Light St. Patrick’s Festival
  • Go Rio Cruises’ Spring Break Reserved Tours
  • The Sylver Spoon Dinner Theater’s Elvis is in the Building: Dinner Concert
  • The Good Kind’s Sunday Brunch Dance Party

Join us for our wild Spring Break celebration from Saturday, March 11 to Sunday, March 26. Reserve your tickets to this event while supplies last!  

Wild Enrichment Activities Offered During The Zoo’s Spring Break Celebration  

Guests who visit the Zoo during Spring Break in San Antonio are guaranteed to have a wild time like no other! Whether you want to commemorate the occasion by meeting an adorable fennec fox in person or have always wanted to hand feed a majestic bison, our Spring Break event is sure to have something for everyone. In fact, we are excited to announce that we will be offering five brand new animal encounters during our Spring Break celebration! The first of these new encounters will feature our adorable pancake tortoises. This unique tortoise species is named after its distinctly flat shell. Even though tortoises are notoriously slow, the pancake tortoise’s flat shell allows it to move faster than its round-shelled counterparts. Another fun fact about pancake tortoises is that their brown, patterned shell allows them to seamlessly blend into their habitat to hide from potential predators. Book an animal encounter with our pancake tortoises to make this Spring Break unforgettable!

Another new encounter that we will be unveiling during our Spring Break celebration will showcase our incredible dwarf crocodiles! In August, we had the privilege of welcoming two baby dwarf crocs into the Zoo’s constantly growing family. Now that these crocs have gotten used to their surroundings, we couldn’t be more excited to introduce you to them through this interactive animal encounter! Since dwarf crocs only grow up to about 5 feet long, meeting these little guys in person can be a great opportunity for guests to get acquainted with our smallest crocodilians. Since these animal encounters double as incredible enrichment activities for our guests and animal residents alike, consider booking an animal encounter at the Zoo this Spring Break! For more information about our wide array of animal encounters, visit our website.
